Novell wows 'em with SLED 10

Filed under
SUSE

Thousands of people broke out with applause in Salt Lake City this week, including many jumping to a standing ovation with excitement over what they were seeing.

The demo of the SuSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 was part of the weeklong BrainShare conference touting Novell products and services.

Nat Friedman, Novell vice president of Linux desktop engineering, said the new desktop is for corporate America's "knowledge workers."

"Our goal of Desktop 10 is to build a really easy-to-use, powerful desktop for general knowledge workers," he said. "These are people who live in e-mail, in the browser, in the office suite - not people who need a hundred different applications, but people whose lives really consist of just living in those applications."

The demo indicated it would be a good life in the new desktop, also referred to as SLED 10. Users are able to scroll miniversions of windows open on the desktop, shuffle quickly to the needed window, easily access Web sites and easily attach items to e-mails - often with drag-and-drop moves.
